Catalogue Entry

The Terracotta Warriors are a significant archeological embodiment of Chinese culture and history. During his reign in the Qin dynasty, Emperor Qin Shi Huang Di ordered the production of over 7,000 terracotta soldiers to surround his tomb and accompany him into the afterlife. 


This particular Terracotta Solider replica is depicted with slim facial features and cone bun. The cone bun visually encapsulates a historic Qin custom as visually illustrated on our Terracotta Soldier replica. Headwear and hair styles reveal different ranks on Qin warriors. Since the Qin Dynasty (221-207) there has been documentation of various ways to style, braid and pin the cone bun. Low ranked soldiers have a bun on the right side of their head. A bun that sits on the right side is suggested to be respectful.


兵馬俑是中國文化和歷史的重要考古發現。秦始皇在位期間,下令工匠製作7000多名兵馬俑去圍繞他的墳墓,以陪伴他進入來世。


這個特殊的兵馬俑複製品有苗條的面部特徵和錐形髮髻。正如我們的兵馬俑複製品所展示的那樣,錐形髮髻在視覺上體現了秦國的歷史風俗。 在秦代,頭飾和髮型則顯示出秦兵的不同等級。自秦朝(221-207年)以來,已有文獻記載了將錐形髮髻進行造型、編織和固定的各種方法。低級士兵的頭右側有一個髮髻,表示了尊重。
